I am having a hard time migrating my MySQL 4.1 database from old 16-byte password hashes to the new 41-byte hashes. The problem is, that the mysqld server automatically starts with the "old-passwords = on" directive, which restricts setting new passwords to 41-bytes length.
My question: Does anyone know how I can tell mysqld to run without the "old-passwords = on" directive? I tried my.ini, commmandline, setting the variable locally, but nothing worked.
Thanks a lot! Philipp
